Proficiency Puzzle

Proficiency Puzzle - for language class - Mis Clases Locas
In my 1st week of Spanish class plans I mentioned that I wanted to do a station involving students beginning to distinguish between proficiency levels. Since I am starting a new school I do not know my students knowledge of the different levels of proficiency. A way I came up with to introduce the idea to Spanish 1, as well as check for understanding from the upper levels is an activity I am going to call Proficiency Puzzle. 


The goal of this activity is for students to gain an awareness and begin to distinguish the various world language proficiency levels. 

To prep
  • Download the Proficiency Puzzle here
  • Print the proficiency descriptions and cut the squares. If you are planning on using it for multiple classes, print on card stock and laminate for durability. Since I plan on using it at a station and not as a whole class activity, I only plan on prepping a few sets in different colors, so they will not get mixed and jumbled together.

  • Print the blank proficiency levels on card stock. Attach them to form one poster if you would like.

In pairs or groups have students work to match the proficiency description in the corresponding box. Provide guidance by walking around and assisting where needed. 

Once finished, project the answer keys to discuss the proficiency path and the expected proficiency at their particular level. 

How do you talk about proficiency in your class?
